Bruce Norris Presents: Secrets of Becoming Wealthy in Real Estate & Bill Shopoff


Bruce Norris & Bill Shopoff 


About the speakers:

Bruce Norris is an active investor, hard money lender, and real estate educator with over 30 years of experience. Bruce has been involved in over 2,000 real estate transactions as a buyer, seller, builder, and money partner. Bruce is best known for his long-term market timing trends. The release of The California Comeback report in 1997 gained him much notoriety and its accuracy led many California investors to financial freedom. His January 2006 release, The California Crash, was an in-depth look into the California market correction and the statistics behind Bruce’s predictions. Bruce speaks and debates nationally as well as hosts an award-winning real estate radio show where he interviews world-renowned economists, government leaders, association presidents, and local experts. Bruce also hosts the series, I Survived Real Estate, which has raised nearly $350,000 for charity since the event launched in 2008.

Discussion points:

Join us February 4 for OC FIBI's meeting where you can learn about to both manage and increase your wealth. Bruce Norris will discuss:

• Changing your results by changing your attitude

• The importance of being sophisticated and how this is beneficial for growth

• Maximizing your profits by increasing your exposure

• Creating a wealth team

• Becoming a successful business owner

The market has shifted, the “cheese” has been moved. Who you bring to the table is just as powerful and important as knowing the “when to” and “how to” piece of the business.

You do not want to miss this event.  Bruce Norris has over 30 years of experience in the real estate business and has successfully done over 2,000 real estate transactions.  With this knowledge and experience, Bruce has passed this knowledge on and helped so many in California to succeed in their business.

    This was the first time meeting Mr. Norris or Mr. Shopoff. I was very impressed with both presenters they did not make there subjects about them. They were up front about how much work and time it take to be successful in real estate.

    As an experienced real estate and deed of trust investor, I value any and all information and education that I can receive from the top professionals in the industry. If you missed this and other opportunities like this offered, you will never know what you don't know. The net working in this room on meeting nights is invaluable. I drive two hours each directions to get there.

    I just want to say that I hope to get to meet up soon and that I can use the information to put myself in a much better place in life then I am right now. My father sold produce around the southland and took all of his profits and invested in properties of all kinds in the southland. Investing in Real Estate is tangible and so important to help pursue your own dreams and desires through great investments.
